Retro Mom Tag

Welcome to Saturday! 

I've been wanting to make another tag for my new tag chandelier system.  I decided to make one that was quite a bit different from the others.

I started with an image from a Melody Ross paper pack.  I cut  the mom out and set her aside while I piled on layer after layer of scraps that were on my work table.  I really didn't pay attention to what the scraps looked like because once they are layered, they always seem to work out just right.

After I "applied" the mom, I used an MFT Stamps border die to cut the bottom of the tag.  The tag was pretty thick, so I ended up having to use my knife to cut through a few layers.  But you can't tell, and I know I won't.

The pink felt flower is one of the newest MFT Stamps dies.  It is super easy to use because you just roll it up and a flower appears.  Voila!

The rest of the tag is adorned with brads and flowers and ribbons from my stash.  It is sort of a hodgepodge of a tag - but I am pleased with it.  I think the Stickled edging was the perfect final detail.

Here are the dies I used to make this tag.  You can click on each link to see them on line.
